Fang Shui Friday

Sharp claws are auspicious. Sharpen them against wooden items in the house. In this way the tough properties of the wood are transferred to your claws.

From Fang Shui by Catfucious, Peter Pauper Press, 2002.

If claws are so good, then why, oh why, did my firsted owner have them taken out? Mum doesn't know for sure, so she won't guess. But like most kitties who don't have claws, I have a tendency to use my teeth. Mum knew this when she got me. Plus she knew I would have to be an inside only kittie, since I wouldn't have any way to defend myself against other kitties or any other creature if I were allowed outside. So I only get to go outside with mum and then inside my porch.

Mum has been spending so much time outside when she comes home from work. Can't say that I blame her, it is nice and sunny. So she is working on stuff with her plants. Inspecting the trees to see how they are doing. The crabby apple tree will soon have its purrty flowers open. It is amazing how quickly things change once the weather warms up. Two weeks ago the leaves were just barely starting to open up.

Mum was very efficient she has finished knitting the pink boa that Skeezix was high bidder for. I would show pictures, but I figured that Skeezix should be the first to see the finished product. But mum says it didn't take much time to do which she liked. Plus a local store had some of the same type of yarn on sale last week. So she bought some to make more!! But they won't be pink.

Hi Derby! We like the spring weather too. There are more birds in the garden and sun spots on the carpet.

I'm sorry to hear that you were declawed. That's not very nice, is it? But lucky for you, you have a wonderful mom who takes good care of you AND you have a nice porch.

Derby I had no idea you were clawless! And your overall happiness just impresses me more. Perhaps we can show you as a bit more handicapped if we're running a tight race and get those sympathy votes!

I'm so looking forward to tomorrow!
